The OVO Energy Women’s Tour’s time in Suffolk may now be over, but riders can enjoy an authentic Stage One experience by tackling the race’s official sportive.

Taking place on Sunday 1 July, the OVO Energy Tour Ride offers 30 and 80-mile circular routes, both starting and finishing at Southwold, home of Adnams, which means there’ll be a free drink for everyone afterwards!

The routes combine roads that are being used on this year’s opening stage of the OVO Energy Women’s Tour with some that have been used in previous editions – for example the beautiful coastal route from Thorpeness to Aldeburgh – giving you a taste of what the world’s best will have raced on during Stage One.

You can check out the two routes here, and sign-up to enter by clicking here.  Entry to either route is £35 with £5 from every entry going directly to Breast Cancer Care, the official charity of the event, and everyone gets a medal for finishing, as well as the chance to relax in the beautiful setting of Southwold afterwards.
